If like us, you haven’t been paying too much attention to your skin, this treatment is just what the doctor ordered. Papaya is known to work its magic on skin when eaten as well as applied externally. It acts as a gentle exfoliant and its rich vitamin A and papain content help to get rid of dead skin cell build-up.
This papaya facial is an excellent way to get rid of all the dark spots and pigmentation that summer might have left on your skin. It helps deal with discoloration to make your skin appear visibly brighter and with a lesser hint of a tan than before. In addition, since papaya is also low in sodium content, it’s an excellent way to hydrate your skin, especially if you have dry skin.
The other amazing thing about this papaya facial is that it’s suitable for all ages. In fact, if you’re dealing with an early onset of fine lines and wrinkles, the AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) in papaya, one of the main ingredients in all anti-ageing creams, will come to your rescue.
Apart from the obvious beauty benefits of papaya, the treatment starts with a brief but soothing back and neck massage that relaxes your muscles and put you at ease for the duration of the treatment and dang – does it do a damn good job of that!
The Papaya Fruit Facial is available at all Lakmé Salons and is priced at Rs. 850 (not inclusive of taxes.
